Pictures of details can evoke wonder and emotion. They can be stunning, their composition intriguing and they can tell a story. They have an aspect of fine photography that seeks to be appreciated for its beauty. Their strong visual impact creates an immediate reaction, a sensation, a delight. Simply, they are art! The goal of this course is to sharpen our ability to focus on the details that surround us and capture their images so as to create visual narratives (art) that delights (beauty) and emotionally connects (meaning) with the viewers. When we take notice of the extraordinary that lies within the ordinary, we stimulate our creative excitement and capture beauty around us.

Join us for three fast and furious afternoons of jewelry basics.  We'll look at commercially made findings and how they work, and then we'll make our  own.  We'll see what makes a design wearable or not, and  how to make a good  design even better.  Tools, beads, wire and lots more come under scrutiny. This class is for beginners and those who want to push their jewelry work into new realms.  The more you make, the more you'll learn, so expect homework. Students must purchase approximately $20 of materials to bring to the first class:  round nose pliers, chain  nose pliers, flush or semi-flush cutter, 20 gauge wire and a handful of beads. See details in Special Notice.
